Newcomb, Larry with Bucky Pizzarelli
Essential Messenger, 2017, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Veteran jazz guitarist Larry Newcomb teams up with Bucky Pizzarelli, a legendary guitarist“who still has remarkable chops! They are supported by a rhythm section including pianist Eric Olsen, bassist Dmitry Kolesnik and Jimmy Madison on drums. This is the same team from Newcomb’s last outing,“Live Intentionally!“(4/3). They play of mix of originals and standards that really swing. Of note are ” You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” and “Gold Top”. Leigh Jonatis adds vocals on two selections to balance the set, a“Living Tribute“to Pizzarelli.
